This avg seems too low. it should give approx 9.5 to 10 km in the begining till the first service and then should increase a bit. Dont expect avg like 15 to 18 km in City. My guess is approx 10 to 11 km is city is ok. 3 & 4 is too less please show the car to your service center .

First of all check whether the trip computer is showing mileage in litres/100 kms since that is the norm.If yes then 4 l/100 kms means an average of 25 and 9 l/100 kms means an average of about 11.3 kmpl.
However the best method to check average is to tank up and drive for a certain distance say about 200 kms and then tank up again as these trip computers may not be always accurate.

Agree with Rohit above. Also check if you are referring to Instantaneous Consumption in which case you will see the consumption around 3-4 when you are accelerating or in low gear. As you reach a stable speed, it should go up to 17-18. Hence, the consumption will eventually average out around 10-11.

The mileage needs to be checked properlly.Please follow the guidelines by Rohit once and check the average mileage.
